Before and After school Care 2017-2018

child care smThe new school year is coming quickly! September 5th will be here before you know it and we want to help you and your child get ready for the 2017-2018 school year.

There are many programs available for before and after school care, Suffolk Public Schools has information on just a few that you can check out here: Before and After school Care.

Kilby Shores hosts the Suffolk YMCA program for care. Parents can make arrangements for before only, after school only or both. Please check out the YMCA website for more information.

Finally, for those who took advantage of the before school care hosted in the KSES library last school year (2016-2017), the Suffolk Public School system is phasing this program out. ONLY those who attended last year may return this coming fall. No additional students will be accepted.

Thank you for your support of your children and their education. We’re looking forward to a great school year!
